Overclocking a 1090T on a old 770-G45. Didn't bother since I have already ordered a Formula IV. I was running prime, temps were fine, 39C-ish, then the temp started running up fast. And ended at 45C when it just shut down without any blue screen. When I powered it back up again it just started burning on my motherboard. It was actually real flames confused.gif Can I turn my pc back on and set my clocks to default, or will something like this just kill the board?

It means it's toast and if it's under warranty still send it in.

The motherboard catching on fire is a bad thing.

Your motherboard burst into flames.

No, you cannot use it.

No, I would not use your desktop if it caught fire. Disaster just waiting to happen. Just wait on your new board to arrive and RMA the MSI
